School of Science and Engineering

The SSE is responsible for organizing and running the 38 Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes of the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

As of 1 September 2020, the Education Support Centre, the Undergraduate School of Science and Engineering, and the part of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering that is concerned with the Master’s degree programmes are merged into one institute, called the School of Science and Engineering (SSE).The majority of these programmes are organized into 6 disciplinary clusters. Each of the clusters is supervised by a programme board and supported by a cluster team.

Education Management Team (EMT)

The School of Science and Engineering is managed by its Education Management Team (EMT). The EMT is among other things responsible for the design and operation of all education support processes, for the implementation of education policies, for the execution of the HRM-policy within the School and for the staffing, logistics, facilities, and finances for education.
